@John: Totally, and I know, mo chara ;)

 

Man, I dissappointed in myself that I haven't watched all of Louie seeing as I love him so much. If you get the chance and are interested in some insight to his life, check him on Marc Marona podcast. Fantastic.

Louie is amazing. It's too bad that there's only 3 seasons on Netflix.

so we just got back from seeing Jim Norton perform downtown @ Comedy Works, Denver.

http://www.westword.com/arts/jim-norton-on-media-hypocrisy-his-new-special-and-his-transgender-co-host-6621872

 

seriously awesome show.

little Jimmy is hilarious but the 2 comics who opened for him I had never heard of, and the first guy really killed the room. great warm-up job. and Norton brought the house down with his Cosby rape bits at the end. I bought an American Degenerate tshirt after the show and got to shake Jim's hand. almost forgot how great that room is. Comedy Works can seat over 100 people but it's still that old fashioned basement cellar feeling with the low ceilings right beneath the main bar.

 

there's also a two-item minimum inside the showroom.

the drinks aren't overpriced though by any means.

I've been interested in going there for a really long time... how much are the drinks? We would be on a bit of a budget and I'd love to get some insight into that.

Since pretty much all of the talk has been about favorite comedians of all time (and most of the good ones are taken), here is "Norman Rockwell Is Bleeding" by Christopher Titus, one of my favorite stand-up shows I've seen.

Fons Jansen, a dutch cabaretier which has been dead for a few decades,but his humor is timeless. Though his first show is too hard to understand for me (jokes about the church are hard when you've never heard the terms before), all his later shows have been fantastic and consistent. Great thought-provoking songs, religious and political criticism and timeless jokes. It's in Dutch, so you probably won't like it and there is barely any video footage;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sonlP1jBlzs

 

That's his 2nd show, still quite religious but nothing people wouldn't understand.

 

I'm also quite a fan of Hans Teeuwen, but it kind of depends on his shows wether I find it funny or not, he has actually done something in English, so you can check that out:

I'm a huge fan of Jim Gaffigan, Daniel Tosh and Lewis Black. They're probably my top 3 right now.

I really like Kyle Kinane as well. Also Ron White.

I'm gonna have to go with Norm McDonald, the comedian's comedian. So utterly and ridiculously bad that he's genius. I love how insulted the entire room of media elite and establishment politicians at the White House Correspondence dinner with his sh*t-tier jokes in 1997. The best part was that he was probably the only one laughing at his own jokes. Comedy gold. ;)

There is no one better at the moment than Billy Connolly.

 

In terms of funny people in general, Spike Milligan.

That Bill Cosby... I just love him, so nice, warm and comforting. You really feel like he cares about people, you know? Like you could just have a drink with him and everything would be allllrrrighjtjkldfkf;fdas

nobody mentions Eddie Murphy because he's an actor, not a comedian.

 

he hasn't toured or done a set or told a joke on stage in like 30 years.

those albums are classic but nobody thinks of Eddie as a standup anymore.

^ Eddie, was a comedic beast in his prime, too bad he ditched stand up for acting. I'd should've added him to the list as a favorite as well. Truly iconic.

 

This comedian might be a little underated, but he's also one of my favs. Mainly, for the following act. :lol:

I cast a pretty wide net; a lot of my favorites include the bigger-than-life showfolks like Carlin - but I'm also a real sucker for one liners. Mitch Hedburg, Neil Hamburger, Steven Wright, Emo Phillips, Nick Thune... it's an interestingly pure take on the form.

incidentally... we're going to see Jim Norton for our 2nd time within a year.

he was here last Summer @ Comedy Works, part of the American Degenerate tour, and now he's coming back through on his Mouthful of Shame tour @ the Paramount. bought these tickets shortly after I got the Bill Burr tickets and almost completely forgot.

Bill and Jimmy within 2 months.

it's gonna' be a good Spring.

They're both dead, but I loved George Carlin and Greg Giraldo. Carlin had this contagious "zest" or energy about him and Giraldo was just straight-up brutal.

that is true. but then one could say the same of Chris Rock who hasn't done a stand up in 8 years and has pretty much focused on acting and directing since.
